To say it right from the start: Corona was not the deciding factor for us to develop a mobile museum in a travelling case. But as with many other things, Corona was an accelerator. We thought that it was the best time to go public with our mobile NFC travelling museum.
We would like to describe here how we came up with the idea of developing a digital museum case.
Actually, it was personal experiences and conversations among family and friends that made us come up with the idea of a digital museum.
The obvious question was: how do we bring the museum to the people if they cannot or do not want to visit a museum?
Our solution: We put a small museum with selected tactile objects into a secure travel case. A screen serves as a small media station. The exhibits can be touched, moved and looked at. And they are ready to share their story with the audience by using our NFC-based multimedia information system. Creative story telling makes the objects even more interesting and our Travelling Museum brings content in multiple languages, for different target groups and is ready for interactive content such as search games or quizzes.
For example, a family could borrow the NFC Travelling museum and discover the miniature museum while sitting comfortably in their own home. Children are encouraged to do what they want to: Touch everything, try it out, have a loud conversation, take a break whenever they want to and playfully discover another world. Stress-free for everyone! And perhaps the family will visit the museum as soon as possible because of the great experience they had with the miniature museum at home. The children will then be able to visit the objects they have already learnt a lot about at home.
We will present some ideas soon how information and stories can be presented best with the museum suitcase. There is more to come!
